Paracord is an amazing tool for survival.

It is simple, practical and it can be used every day. And it looks trendy, cool!

When I was approached to try the Paracord product, I had no idea what makes this material highly desirable. My first thought was it must be a cross between high tech survival gear or a travel sewing kit. I was sort of right!

Now I am sold and this product is amazing. I’ve had a chance to try a keychain and wristband made of Paracord which was designed to fit perfectly and in the colors of my choosing. The look is fun, but in the end you have a piece of functional, survival jewelry. Wear it on your wrist or my favorite is to attach it to a first-aid bag, grab and go backpack or even purse.

Are you curious yet? Do you want to know what this miracle material is?

Say HELLO to Paracord!

According to the Paravival.com website:

The term paracord comes from the cord used on the soldier’s parachutes in WWII. The term 550 simply meant that it had a breaking strength of 550 pounds, giving it its full name of 550 paracord, or 550 cord. When soldiers landed in the battle fields, they would cut the paracord off their parachutes and pack it up for later use. This particular cord would come in handy for the soldiers during battle. Whether it was used to strap gear to humvees, help build shelters, or lowering gear down ledges, the cord could be used in endless ways.

This Product is a “Must Have” for Scouts

My two older boys are in Scouts and these products are perfect for their outdoor activities. My eldest son uses the keychain regularly and the sturdy size and shape makes it easy to find. The compass selection is ideal for any Scout, hiker or survivalist.

Excellent Product for Emergency Personnel!

If you are a Policeman, Fire Fighter, Coast Guard or any other kind of emergency personnel including CERT (community emergency response team) this is a great product to own and wear. This would also make a handy, practical gift.

You pick your colors too and the type of cord style you prefer whether it is Gator, Fishtail, Cobra or custom. The technique used to make the individual styles is so unique and creative that you will cause a stir when you wear one. All your friends will want to know where you go it.

Paravival also boasts of other products made of Paracord to include belts, watches, compasses, paracord kits, pet gear and many other made-to-order products.

In an emergency, or survival situation, the goal of paracord is to deploy quickly when needed. At the Paracord site, you can view several tutorials showing you the quick release option and how in less than 20 seconds you have access to your cord. Imagine being on a boat, camping, hiking or skiing, or in your own concrete jungle, and you need strong cord right now. There are thousands of uses and you have access to the benefits immediately.

Make a fashion statement that says, “I’m prepared for anything.”

At last you are here. Be bold. Seize the moment. Take a chance.
